Big Navi packs a punch
Pros: Raw Performance is great More power efficient than other cards Minimal RGB, just an led really on side
Cons: Coil whine is noticeable, had to drop an egg for that
Overall Review: Overall pleased with the card and it’s performance. Drivers are good so far. No game crashes yet.
Pros: RGB is cool, wrist pad is a nice touch
Cons: Keys do not respond like I hoped they would since they are Kalith brown switches. These keys feel mushy and don’t really feel like cherry mx switches at all. Not horrible but not to my preference
Overall Review: If you need something budget this is ok. I’m sure there are better options out there though
I really like this board
Pros: - VRM has heatsink - Has just enough bells and whistles to make it a great buy - BIOS recognizes 3000 series out of the box - Has decent amount of Usb 3.0 ports - Great price
Cons: - Wish the M.2 slot had a heatsink with thermal pads to help out installed nvme drives - Why is there just one usb type c port on the back?
Overall Review: Specs CPU: AMD R5 3600X RAM: 32GB DD4 3200 G.SKILL TridentZ RGB Series MB: MSI B450 TOMAHAWK MAX NVME: 1TB Intel 660p M.2 SSD: 1TB Seagate BarraCuda GPU: NVIDIA RTX 2060 Super Cooler: Corsair H100x
Pros: - Fast - Overclocked already - Handles everything I throw at it with ease I thought about getting the R7 3700X over this one but the price during the black friday sales events couldn't allow me to pass this up. Performance is great in when I have couple instances of Visual Studio and SSMS open. Handles games with ease. I have no worries about running the latest title for the next couple of years
Cons: - HOT This cpu tends to get pretty hot with temps 70C+ on the stock cooler. Instead paired it with my Corsair H110x and temps did not rise about 64C under full load and 24C idle.
Overall Review: Glad I purchased this cpu and meets all my current needs with 6 cores / 12 threads.
